Why soaking Nuts before Making Raw Cookies
Soaking nuts, seeds, and oats in warm water with a pinch of salt before consuming them has become a habit of mine.
Benefits of soaking
Soaking nuts and seeds can help to break down the phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors in them. So our bodies can properly absorb the nutrients and minerals stored in nuts and seeds.
Texture from soaking
Soaking nuts and seeds overnight can also soften these stubborn powerhouses.
The soaking process can result in the fudgiest and chewy No-Bake Double Chocolate Cookies.
How to Store These No Bake Double Chocolate Cookies
Short answer: Freezer for as long as you want.
Although they are usually gone quickly in my household.
I usually store them in an airtight container or storage bag in the freezer. When I’m ready to enjoy one or two (or the whole batch), I take them out and sit in room temperature for a few minutes.
They defrost fairly fast. Top it with your favorite ice cream, yogurt or enjoy with a cup of coffee.
